Multitasking Skirt

The wedding season is in a full swing. I personally have 4 weddings this summer (excluding the ones I had in the spring and will have in late fall). Dressing for weddings can get to be pretty expensive. It’s a girl thing to have to buy a new dress for every wedding. And with new dress, we usually want to buy shoes that go exactly with that dress. Then hair, makeup, and the bill can add up pretty quickly. In the last few years I have had about 5 weddings per year on average, so imagine how many dresses and shoes that is. Well, I personally will commit offense of wearing one dress to more than just one wedding. I am not a fan of dresses that are too dressy, especially satin ones, so my dresses give me the flexibility to wear them to other events throughout the year. Usually the dress I buy is not too formal. To make is more formal all I do is change up the shoes, accessories, hair and makeup. I love versatility when it comes to any piece of clothing, especially a dress.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
But who says we have to wear dresses only to weddings? I disagree. Recently, partly because I could not find a dress that I liked, I wore this outfit to one of my friend’s weddings. You have seen me wear this skirt with a white blouse while in Spain which is great for going out for cocktails or dinner. I have also attached a few pictures where I paired it with a sweater for an outfit that you can wear in the fall to an office maybe. Switch up the sweater for a blouse and a blazer and you have yet another outfit. For the wedding, I combined it with my corset and necklace which you have already seen me wear here, with a skirt from Zara, chandelier earrings and voilà. Now granted, if the wedding you are going to is very formal, this may not work as well, but most of my friend’s weddings are not too formal. You may want to switch the mini skirt for a nice pencil skirt which you most likely already own, pair it with dressier stiletto sandal and it can go to a more formal wedding too. Just think about it, there are many options available for you in your closet already. You just have to let your inspiration run wild and try things out. You don't really need another dress in your closet that will hang there and collect dust, and remind u every time u see it what a waste of money it was, do you? Ciao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown ( similar ), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures f

Would You Wear a Bathing Suit as a Top?

Skirt H&M, bathing suit/top unknown, sandals Le Chateau, bag vintage Value Village, hat bought in Athens From north of Greece and beautiful Khalkidhiki peninsula, we headed due south and reached this little town called Athens 😊 . Athens Greece is simply beautiful. No matter where you are in the city, Gods of Acropolis are looking over you. It is such an amazing feeling especially at night when the city is covered by darkness and Acropolis shines in its full light and grandeur. It’s a wonderful feeling to be walking down city streets and being pleasantly surprised by monuments from Ancient Greece as you turn the next corner. I started of my city walk from Monesteriaki neighbourhood and walked around all neighbourhoods surrounding it, from Plaka and Kolonaki to Anafiotika and Gazi. I especially loved Anafiotika. If you love hilly neighbourhoods, then you will love Anafiotika. At night, you can sit on the stairs of cafés and enjoy a cold beer or a cocktail with all the local

Another Striped Dress, Denim Jacket & Ankle Boots

Dress & jacket H&M, boots Dolce Vita, bag Ardene, scarf Cejon (Winners), sunglasses Ray-Ban, bracelets H&M, ring Ebay Yesterday was a bit of a good and a bit of a bad day. My husband had hurt his knee so I took a day off work to take him to a clinic to check it out. It ended up being quick so we decided to spend the rest of the day in Queen West area of Toronto, and do a little picnic in a park, Trinity Bellwoods Park to be exact. It was a gorgeous and relaxing day. We lunged around, ate some lunch, had a coffee and got some sun. I wore another striped dress but this one is a bit more casual. I paired it with my cute ankle boots (little bit of country hehe) and a must have spring staple, a denim jacket. How are you enjoying the spring? Ciao! Juce je bio delom lep, a delom los dan. Moj muz je povredio koleno pa sam uzela slobodan dan s posla da ga odvezem do klinike. A posto smo brzo zavrsili, odlucili smo da napravimo mali piknik u parku Trinity Bellwoods. Bio je

Black & White Striped Forever 21 Dress & Aldo Shoes

Shoes Aldo, bag Target, dress Forever 21, jacket Le Chateau, sunglasses ZeroUV, spike bracelets Aldo, silver bracelet Tiffany&Co, watch DKNY Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly
